Tavis Smiley (/ˈtævɨs/; born September 13, 1964) is an American talk show host, author, liberal political commentator, entrepreneur, advocate and philanthropist. Smiley was born in Gulfport, Mississippi, and grew up in Bunker Hill, Indiana. After attending Indiana University, he worked during the late 1980s as an aide to Tom Bradley, the mayor of Los Angeles. Smiley became a radio commentator in 1991, and starting in 1996, he hosted the talk show BET Talk (later renamed BET Tonight) on BET. After Smiley sold an exclusive interview of Sara Jane Olson to ABC News in 2001, BET declined to renew Smiley's contract that year. Smiley then began hosting The Tavis Smiley Show on NPR (2002–04) and currently hosts Tavis Smiley on PBS on the weekdays and "The Tavis Smiley Show" from PRI. From 2010 to 2013, Smiley and Cornel West joined forces to host their own radio talk show, Smiley & West. They were featured together interviewing musician Bill Withers in the 2009 documentary film Still Bill. He is the new host of "Tavis Talks" on BlogTalkRadio's Tavis Smiley Network.

Tavis you speak openly and candidly about the poor choices President Obama is making in guiding the country. I was wondering if you and Dr.West have taken the opportunity to share your views with the President? For me, you are becoming somewhat of a one note speaker...highlighting the problems of this presidency. It almost seems like your zeal for uplifting the race has been superceded by your pursuit of discrediting the president. And, while I agree with some of what you say I think many black folks are taking issue with you because it seems like this has become your mantra. Have you thought of building a coalition to help the president, rather than just bashing? him "respectfully" (as you say!) Maybe share what you have done to help rather than just point out Obama's failures. You are in a better position than your audiences to get his ear (respectfully)
